“Historic and well appointed”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

In the beautiful town of Ronda the Hotel San Gabriel is an excellent stopover point. Not too difficult to drive to once in the town using basic map and following signs. The hotel is compact but homely and staff were very efficient and helpful. Rooms were clean and well appointed for a short stay. Breakfast was continental style but adequate given the spanish eating life style which means the real fun starts later. Only stayed for two nights but happy to recommend. On another note having read countless comments about the "scary" road to Ronda from Malaga would just like drivers to know that unless they have been living in a bubble the road is an easy drive. For Australians the Great Ocean Road is "scarier" if you know what I mean. Travel Advisor - use it but don't rely on it!

Room Tip: Maybe a back room will be best if you are a light sleeper.

WARNING if travelling by car: this hotel is along a narrow street that is quite difficult to locate--even with Google navigate. It's probably best to study a detailed city map a day ahead.
Upon arrival, however, English-speaking staff is very friendly and helpful. They will direct you to a convenient nearby parking lot with a discount for hotel guests.
Rooms are charming and welcoming with a delightful old-world atmosphere.
For walking around Ronda the location is excellent. Even while in the old city, your room will be an oasis of quietude.
Staff will recommend small excellent restaurants--most of which required booking in advance.
A fine choice for visiting Ronda.

We stayed two nights october 2013. We had a very fine stay at San Gabriel and would love to able to come back sometime. There is a nice atmosphere at San Gabriel. It's a kind of timecapsule with the interieur, the pictures, the library, the winecellar and the way things are done at San Gabriel. The hotel is placed in the old town with very narrow street and short distance to the most beautifull views to the hills and mountains surrounding Ronda. The staff are very nice and they also try to help you to get even more out of you stay i Ronda. Its very recommendable for couples seeking the calmness and romatic walks in the narrow streets in the old town.

We got lost trying to find our way into Ronda and ditched the car at a parking garage and took a cab into the old city. The narrow ancient streets are not car friendly and we are happy we gave up on looking for it, or even moving our car to the closer lot where the hotel staff guided us. But that is not a negative. Our "superior double:" room was gorgeous, huge, quiet. Old-fashioned elegance. And a large modern bathroom. The hotel is very well situated in the old city. Srongly recommend it.

Room Tip: Our superior double felt like a suite.

We loved the baroque style and location of this place - created such a magical atmosphere to go with the old town of Ronda
Would recommend this place to old and young travellers alike!
Wish we could have stayed longer and would definitely return.

Unfortunately we could only spend one night in this special hotel in amazingly beautiful Ronda! Our junior suite was just amazing with a wonderful warm feel - beautifully styled and furnished - even the bathroom was a lovely surprise. Pleasant Short walk to centre of town and surrounded by excellent restaurants. The ambience of the hotel is just so special and unique. Well priced.

Room Tip: "The green" junior suite on the ground floor is amazing - don't miss this one!

Yes, perfectly located and service amiable. It was the ambiance though that captured my heart. It seemed I was in another time and place with all the conveniences of today. I imagined myself as a Spanish señorita awaiting a serenade from my admirer. Ronda was a peaceful hamlet between the energetic big cities we were visiting. My heart was touched.

Room Tip: Ask for one with more than one window.
